New to camping chairs? We have you covered. Start with what is most important to you: camping and back yard use, day trips to sporting events or the beach, or backpacking in.
Pros: Affordable, well built (holds up to 300 lbs.), very comfortable, high seat, breathable and it drys quick if you are away and it rains.
Cons: Can be a struggle to get it into the carry bag. The cup holders might not fit a very large water bottle but luckily you can use the side pouch if needed.
Bottom line: The Kijaro Dual Lock Portable Camping and Sports Chair is our favorite around campsites, backyards, and for sporting events. It’s very well-made and comfortable to sit in. This chair does not sag down unlike some other cheap camping chairs. It’s a tall chair and fit most tall and average-sized adults. Comes with shoulder strap carrying straps for easy carry.
Top pick: We’ve had a few chairs wear out on us over the years but this chair is durable and long-lasting. While other camp chairs only have cup holders this one has an extra pocket that come in super handy. For example, what happens when you have a beer, large Nalgene water, and the marshmallows…well this chair has you covered. This chair is the one we use out on our adventures and has become one of our favorite items in our top gear picks.
